About Watargpk
Joined October 2016
Hi, Peter here. I am a graduate of EE Engineering but have been working over the past decade as a Petroleum Engineer in the Oil and Gas industry. I am now breaking away into the internet entrepreneurial venture. My earlier attempts have been to experiment with website development, mobile apps, forex trading, and now with affiliate marketing. I hope to settle finally for this, seeing the great expectation set by the "Wealthy Affiliates" platform.

One of my greatest hobbies is to try out innovative ideas, which invariably requires reading, researching and writing. I envisage that this will fit easily into affiliate marketing, which I hope to promote as my next hobby.

I look forward to meeting new friends and learning how to succeed within this community as an Affiliate Marketer, and eventually be able to grow enough income to sustain my needs.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Hi Shawn...
Thanks for the response. However, the link you provided does not answer my question. I may not have explained it well enough. Let me try explain again:

I have my domain currently hosted by godaddy. Is it possible to have my nameservers retained with godaddy and still be able to have my website in WA up and running by pointing the @ record to WA hosting platform ? I like to still be able to control the DNS in the godaddy account since I have access to my cPanel in godaddy.

You have a domain hosted there, I assume you have the website up with content on it correct? If that is the case no, you would have to have the actual website built on WA's website builder which does not have c panel access.
Does that help?

No I do not have a website built in godaddy. I will build the website here in WA. But I want the DNS control retained in godaddy.

That is how it works, you would point the DNS servers to WA using the WA DNS addresses

ns1.mywahosting.com
ns2.mywahosting.com
The domain would s6tay at Godaddy.

I have tried this out before but did not work. By pointing the domain to WA via ns1.mywahosting.com and ns2.mywahosting.com , it means that the nameserver (ns) will reside in WA. I will not be able to edit it to set up emails, etc because I do not have access to the cPanel in WA.

The alternative is to retain the DNS in godaddy instead of WA. I suppose the support team will be able to figure this out. I have sent them a ticket since about 8 hours now. Still waiting for thier feedback...

That is how it works, the only way to keep the Cpanel and e-mail services of Godaddy is to host there.

If I may ask, why does it take such a long time to get a feedback from the support team or even an acknowledgement of my ticket? Any idea?

No, and feel free to run this by them. As far as I know the above is correct but if you find out differently please let me know too, lol

I just upgraded to Premier status today. But while I was trying to enrole for the webinar planned for 6pm today, the system is redirecting me to make 1year payment. Is this a requirement to be able to attend the webinar? Someone should please help to clarify. I hope this can be resolved and I can still make the webinar in the next hour. Thanks.

Hey Peter,

Awesome, you've written your "About Me" - you're one step further on your new journey here at WA.

Now that you've completed your account setup you are now able to more comfortably communicate with the community for guidance and support!

As always, you should put your focus to the lessons here at WA before anything else. The "Get Started Here" button on the left side of the members area is where you'll be able to move through each lesson so that your first website can be created in an optimal way for you.

These are the same lessons that I've went through to create a full-time income with my own sites. Check out the link below, it's a direct result of the lessons provided at that big green button! I look forward to what you create as we move forward, we have exciting times ahead so keep at it, keep focused and let's dominate this industry together!

P.S. You can always get in contact with me via private messaging and you can also hop in and out of the live chat however you deem necessary. The live chat area is filled with members that really want to help you out, pop in and say hi! You might even catch me in there from time to time! :)

Hey Peter, how's it going?

My name is Colton and I referred you here to WA through my website, Digital Time Freedom. I just wanted to introduce myself! I'm always here for you if you ever need help, and so is the rest of the community! :)

The first thing you should do here is to write up a short description of yourself and then upload a profile picture to your profile. Wealthy Affiliate is a community and the community will feel more at ease to connect and help you out once they can see that you are a real person behind your profile.

If you don't want to use your real picture, that's fine. You can upload anything you'd like!

Afterwards, get started with the lessons right here, It's really simple: Go ahead, follow them and you'll be on your way!

P.S. Drop me a "reply" to let me know that you've made it here, OK?
